Your dog’s tail is an extraordinary communication tool. Together with posture, it is the primary means by which they signal their state of mind. Here are 5 significant examples.

  • Tail hanging and relaxed: the dog is quiet, at ease, available for interaction.
  • Tail steady and horizontal: the animal is alert and anxious.
  • Low tail or between legs: the dog feels uncomfortable, afraid or feeling abandoned.
  • Vertical tail: the dog asserts its authority over a situation, communicating dominance.
  • Tail wagging: if the movements are wide, usually this is an expression of positive excitement (joy, enthusiasm); if the movements have a narrow radius, it may signal agitation.
